6:40 am
crash that just happened on the bay bridge westbound. it is west of treasure island. you can see it here. this is involving a motorcyclist down in the lanes. westbound. that is why it's pretty dangerous when it's slippery conditions to be on a bike in these days. bridge crews have arrived on the scene. at least one of the lanes is blocked there. i can see one lane. i want to take a look at the incline section. the traffic is now at a standstill on the bridge. westbound into san francisco. this will be a major problem. it's also going to back up things at the toll plaza because right now take a good look at it. it's not that crowded. they will slow the metering lights down. probably 10-15 minutes from now we will come back to this and it will be jammed. you might want to think about this and head into the city. in a way use bart and the san mateo bridge. this is a big problem for the bay bridge. let's move along to steve now.
6:41 am
>> hold on sal. >> steve. >> go ahead. >> and now meteorologist steve paulson. brandon in pacifica said 36. the coldest air comes in around the noon hour. the noon hour. but it's already rather cold. santa rosa 32. now there is a lot of 30s and 40s. a little bit more cloud cover to the south. our system is moving out of the area. you can see the low taking parallel to the coast. not a bad okay system for this kind of pattern. unfortunately this looks like it for awhile. the five, seven, 15 day outlook are dry. there might be one system a week from sunday but i don't think it will do too much. everything will be east of us. oakland almost in there. san jose .08. san jose .07. generally a tenth of an inch. that is a kind of a pattern. things seem to be winding down up in the sierra. they could still get shower
6:42 am
activity. this is a big system. the good news it does not look like it will stall. it's moving up the carolina coast. there has been really heavy rain there. rain snow line lifts a little north. but i just got a nice tweet from scott saying informs in washington, d.c.. rain and snow mix will try to get out. for us maybe a little snow mix. snow level could be around 1500 to 2,000 feet. and things are really lighting up toward the santa clara valley. also down in monterey. it looks like things will be improving. 50s on the temps. not much of a difference here. cold tomorrow morning and windy. sunny and warmer weather takes us into next week. time now 6:40. one of california's biggest policeman hunts ever is still happening this morning. they are tracking former l.a. police officer christopher dorner accused of three revenge killings. reporter william live at parker
6:43 am
center. that is the l.a. police headquarters. william. >> reporter: the question is did christopher dorner get off big bear mountain? or is he caught up there in the snow. we don't know that. what we do know however his well trained he's well armed he's exnaval intelligence. exlapd. he knows how to get lost and not use his credit card or cell phone. here's the latest. heavy weather hitting big bear right now. the ski resort is basically in lock down. people are hold up in their houses pulling out their guns themselves. basically they have spent the last 18 hours 120 federal state and local officers looking for him on the ground. also with helicopters. no sign of this guy right now. so let me bring you up to speed on really what led to all this. it was 2007 he was still in a probationary period with lapd
6:44 am
and his supervisor a female officer said listen, i'm going to write you up, pull you from the field because you are not performing properly. you have poor judgment. it was about two weeks later that the with of them were called out to a scene and he claimed the female officer kicked a guy while he was handcuffed. internal fairs watched this investigation and found out that was untrue. that it was a lie. it was retribution for what he was saying and ever since he's held lapd responsible for ruining his reputation and now of course he's said that the killing will continue until the department apologizes which they say will not. dave back to you. >> live from los angeles. thank you. time now is 6:42. it has been a favorite for almost 30 years. the big change we are learning about this morning to an iconic san francisco diner. we are live in san pablo we
